How was your mother's day?
Mine was ok, just a bunch of housework, yardwork, organizing, and gardening, while the Mister took naps. HAHA
I did, however, hang out with a friend's mom last weekend. She has been a mom away from mom for me, since my own mother is more than 8000 miles away.
I have already made her a Duffle Bag, Shoe Bags, Travel First Aid Case, Receipts Pocket for Notebook/Binder, Valentine's Day gifts, Denim Tote, Kitchen Accessories, so WHAT ELSE TO MAKE for her? She works two jobs and they are both far away from home, so she basically lives in her car. So I knew I had to make her something for her car. A Trash Bag!
This is so easy to make, you have to read how to make one.
I first dug out some waterproof fabric, which was a pair of old military pants that my friend gave me. I used the top part of a Upcycled Military Uniform Reversible Tote Bag I made for my mom for Mother's Day.
I am using one leg from the knees
Cut it in half, I am using the bottom half with the draw string.
Find some denim
Sew the bottom of the camo pant leg, right sides together
Box corner it
Do the same to the denim piece. Stitch the sides and bottom, then box corner
Put waterproof bag inside the denim bag, wrong sides together, add straps (or ribbon), pin them all together
Top Stitch them together
Outside, with draw string closure
Iron on some cute design on the outside, then VIOLA!
